JOURDAIN JR. QUALIFIES LAST

Herdez-Viva Mexico! Team driver Michel Jourdain Jr. has had to endure his most difficult weekend so far in CART, after his car suffered a lot of maladies, mainly in the engine department.

Due to this situation, Michel was scheduled to start the timed session this Friday, but during his first warm-up lap the turbo developed a problem that forced him to pit for assistance.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "After the problem with the turbo during my warm-up lap, I pitted and the team fixed the problem. Thus, I was the last qualifier and despite the car was much better, we did not post a good time. The problem is that we could not complete many laps this weekend, so I had to be conservative. The car looks much, much better and hopefully tomorrow we will have a good run."
